Thanksgiving Dinner with our International Students Family @ISH

Thanksgiving is a day that is celebrated mostly in the United States of America and Canada but also celebrated in other parts of the world at different times and is known by different names. For example in Germany it’s called Erntedankfest and in japan it’s known as Labor Thanksgiving Day (勤労感謝の日 Kinrō Kansha no Hi?) and to an extent here in London Guy Fawkes day is consider an unusual thanksgiving day.

Thanksgiving is traditionally known as a day to be thankful for the blessing of a good harvest. Nevertheless nowadays it is celebrated to remind us to be thankful for what we have. At International Students House (ISH) as a big international student family we came together on this occasion to enjoy a traditional thanksgiving feast, and some musical & dance performances. However I can’t upload videos so here are the dropbox link to the musical performance:

Here is the link for the cheerleading dance performance:
